Survey of the FMSI Advent Booklet

10/02/2015: General House

The FMSI's Advent Booklet has circulated for over 15 years. It was first published by BIS (Bureau of International Solidarity of the Marist Brothers Institute), and FMSI took over the publication in 2007. The goal was to offer some clues for reflection in preparation for Christmas to the Marist brothers and laity. During the first years, it focused on solidarity and the needs of people, especially those from the southern hemisphere. More recently, it became a tool to “look at the world through the eyes of poor children and young people” by using the narrative of their simple experiences and life stories. The central topic each year has been one of the rights of the child from the UN Convention signed by 193 countries. Children, assisted by their teachers and educators, have freely told their stories and experiences regarding the topic in question: non-discrimination, attention to handicapped persons, the rights of migrant children, the right to participation, etc.

Please answer our questionnaire, even if you are not acquainted with the FMSI Advent Booklet and you have never used it! Every contribution will be important in assessing the booklet’s uptake, content, and usefulness.

It is time to assess, in a simple and straightforward way, to what extent people known and use the booklet, who are the users, and when and how they use it. For this reason, we ask you to please answer the short online questionnaire.
